Have you ever owned an exotic pet or pets? If so, what kind?
What kind of exotic pets have you ever owned, if any?
Haha! What's that?
The most exotic pet that owned me was a cat that thought it was a person - a fifteen year-old furball of claw and sinew called ' Blacky ' ( how original! ), that would terrorize small children with promises of affection, which were deftly swapped for a fur-fight at the drop of a hat.
LOL ... good question, maybe that should have been my question, what exotic pet is this ... hahaha I love that "it owned you" and that is so true of cats ... Thanks for sharing dear Romeos and thank you for the smiles : )
It almost looks like a Tim Burton character! lol
LOL, it sure does! Now ... who can name that exotic pet ... oh, you just did! LOL
I couldn't help myself and had to come back for another look at your amazing fishy do-da.God sure has a sense of humour-it looks like a foetus that just got paid One to confound the Darwinists! If it had cheeks, I'd pinch 'em; thanks;you're a joy
: ) Did you read the other commenters had identified the little creature. hehehe When I picked exotic, I actually went exotic-too cute. I could not resist him ... I like unique and different ...makes life interesting!
Many years ago I ran a rodentry where I bred fancy rats (including furless) and exotic rodents such as Winter White Dwarf Hamsters (who turn white in winter) spiny mice, doormice, I probably would have gotten into more if I didn't suddenly develop allergies. From there I took in a gaggle of rescued furless cats for a stint and nursed them back to health before rehoming them. I had two Bengals (cross between a normal cat and an Asian Leopard Cat) once too who were hell in fur. haha. I had a domestic skunk dropped off here at one point - now that was a clever goofy little animal if there ever was one! Would have kept him if it wasn't illegal in my state! Right now though all I'm into is Seramas. They are the world's smallest chicken - about the size of a soda can. They come in over 2,000 colors, smooth feathers, curly feathers, slikied feathers (like a chicks their whole life!) and feather-footed. Did I mention they are so sweet, intelligent, and can lay me breakfast? I'm totally in love and enjoy my wee feathered friends who I'm raising for indoor pets (as the breed was created for in Malasia in the 1980's...) Exotic pets do not have to be dangerous pets and I am happy there is something out there for everyone.
Hi Theophanes, Wow, you surely have had your share of caring for and owning exotic pets. I am glad you noted that not all are dangerous! Your tiny chicks sound so amazing and cute indeed. Will have to tell my friend, as she raises chicks. Thanks!
The chicks are TINY when they hatch - the size of a memory card. It's been amazing raising them. I will probably post some Hubs about them in the future.
Wow, Theophanes, that would be so amazing and excellent Hub topics for sure! I am sure many would be delighted to read about such tiny chicks indeed! I look forward to reading if you so such Hubs!
I've owned a few weird pets over the years:
1 - Australian Water Dragon (called Felizzardy....)
2 - Axolotyl
3 - Rats and mice
I now own two cats, a dog, 4 chickens (tho...they aren't pets), and 2 sheep (neither are they!...Roasty and ChopChop).
Hi jlpark, thank you so much for answering and sharing your "weird" pets over the years. haha ... I love their names and I have never heard of those first two. Very interesting.
Your picture is the second one (Mexican Walking Fish).
Thank you so much for letting me know what my picture is, wow, the Mexican Walking Fish ... so unique and cute!
I have the animal in your picture (axolotl, it is a Mexican salamander in a 'neotenic' form), plus snakes, a toucan, dog, small spotted genet, and an iguana.
Faith, as much as I love animals, I never have...however, my nephew, Jay, owned an iguana a few years ago...Can't remember what he named it, but it's amazing how these pets get so attached to people.
Jay loved that pet, and when it died, he was extremely sad. I am loving the answers to this question, especially Theophane's love for Seramas...I never heard of them and I am going to google these unique feathered friends.
IF I owned an exotic pet I know I would get attached to it immediately, as you know how deeply I love animals, especially our four spoiled cats.
God bless and thanks for a great question. Sparklea
We had an albino ferret. She was awesome, but she passed away.
